It’s everywhere the increasing obsession with indoor houseplants. To create an Instagrammable indoor jungle has become the new and ultimate aspirational goal.

Let’s breakdown some of the reasons as to why.

It’s a trend fueled by social media, Instagram to be the top on the list becomes a haven for plants fanatic. Houseplants can thank visually-driven social media platforms for their increasing popularity. Influencers and prominent personalities include green plants as part of their interior design to achieve instgrammable content when staying inside their houses. It brings life and character that adds up to produce a good photoan instant fix or “go-to” for a more aesthetically pleasing home.

But aside from its advantage in creating beautiful content to attract followers, studies have shown the benefits of green plants for their mental and physical health. New “plant parents” have been very vocal through different social media platforms in saying how tending to their new bit of botany helps clear their head, especially during these difficult times. It can improve a person’s mood, increase concentration and productivity, relieve stress, and boost immunity.

Experts have proven the links between plants and the state of one’s mind and emotion. The increased possibility of feeling calmer, happier, and more at ease which what everyone needs amidst global pandemic. The virus that has taken its toll to people leaving everyone stress and anxious. Green plant advocates echoed the effect of it and why it is worth investing. While there has been a big focus on what people are putting into their bodies or physically, they urged people to consider what they need to put in their homes to make themselves feel better.

Some people who are hooked into green plants started calling themselves as “plant parents.” In fact, they start giving names to each of their plants like their own children and nurture them. For them, plant parenthood is a constant escape from busy, day to day hustle, always-on, tech-first society. Indeed, it becomes a form of escapism from the modern world and grants us the time we need to reconnect with nature. Aside from its therapeutic effect, green plants also provide a sanctuary for people who wants to bring the outside in.

Science proves that plants are capable of absorbing gases through their leaves and roots, thus cleaning the air for us. But with its increasing popularity, we believe that the attraction goes beyond that. Caring, nurturing, and talking to green plants is a mind-break in an increasingly busy world where most people are always into gadgets for a significant amount of time and are so occupied with what’s happening around the world.
